My name is Bettina Bussmann, I’m Associate Professor for Philosophy at the Department of Philosophy (GW) at the University of Salzburg.

My area of expertise lies in the fields of didactics of philosophy and ethics, interdisciplinary didactics, and philosophy with children. Further related areas are philosophy of science, applied philosophy, metaphilosophy as well as questions within the thematic complex of love, sexuality and gender.

I advocate a science-oriented philosophy didactics approach that strongly supports an understanding of education that promotes open and interdisciplinary learning settings.

I am glad that after having raised two children, this atypical academic history is no longer an obstacle for those who want to re-enter university research and teaching.
